The Creative Movement workout is a compilation of dance movement, bellydance, barre, pilates, kettlebells, and yoga. This workout will move through various types of programming for levels beginner to advanced. The goal of the workout is to gain a technical foundation of dance movement, increase fluidity and flexibility, increase overall body strength, and explore your body through various mediums.

 

The first cycle of this workout series builds a foundation for basic dance technique and functional fitness skills. We will begin with a beginner barre workout that fuses ballet, dance movement, bodyweight exercise, and yoga into one fun and inspiring class.

 

Creative Movement will run Tuesday and Thursday, but feel to pick any two days that work for your schedule. Have fun with the workout and find your artist in your athletic journey.
